Posts Tagged ‘Old Town Mombasa’

From Fort Jesus, we followed the directions and landmarks laid out in Lonely Plant through Old Town, Mombasa.  We picked up two locals along the way, a shirtless boy and a young deaf man, both eager to point out the way to us. There were so many winding alleyways with intricate doorways and people going about their daily business, we lolly-gagged with cameras clicking away.

We took a break halfway through to get out of the heat and perk ourselves up with some delicious coffee at Jahazi, a coffee house recommended to us by an expat we met earlier that day.

Other than one hair-raising pedicab ride (mostly for Steve who hung on for dear life sharing the small front seat with the driver), we explored Mombasa on foot.  Our handy Lonely Planet guide laid out a walking tour of Old Town, starting at Fort Jesus (built by the Portuguese in 1593).
